A sunny day and time for another Saga run! We’ve never been to Stoke Bruerne – another canal centre and grockle magnet – with a long tunnel, a basin and 5 locks plus two pubs and a canal musuem! So off we went. Another reason for going was to see all the locks being drained and repairs carried out. Odd to see empty locks and men in hi-vis jackets working inside.
This the main line Grand Union canal – wide – with big locks.
Two pubs here – this is the freehouse & family run “Boat” where we had a few pints and a marvellous lunch.
All nice and tranquil in February, I just wonder what’ll it be like in the Summer!
A gentle walk up to the tunnel . . .
Took some nice photos of the tunnel entrance – Toby, fresh from a few days of being below par, was back on form and went a bit berserk here – can you spot him??
Lots of boats here with winter moorings – including these two, a cafe boat and their home boat behind: Billy Whizz. We last saw them up beyond Leicester at the Watermead park.
Back to that pub for lunch!
